Matching celebrity crimes led 15 year old Emily Trustum to win the top prize in The Guernsey Bar’s “Have-a-go” activity at the recent EY Careers and Skills Show.
Deputy Bâtonnier of The Guernsey Bar Council, Advocate Simon Howitt, presented the St Sampson’s High School student with an Apple Watch after she had matched all the celebrities to their crimes.
The year 11 student was one of 78 who entered The Guernsey Bar prize draw, in which participants had to match which crime they thought a celebrity had committed.
Miss Trustum was one of only a few entries that correctly guessed all the crimes that celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian, Snoop Dogg and Oscar Pistorius committed.
Miss Trustum, who sits her GCSE exams this month, had not considered law as a career but after visiting The Guernsey Bar stand was interested to learn about all the different options available.
“It was great to see the variety of careers that are available within the legal profession, not only with a legal focus but also opportunities in marketing, personnel and secretarial,” she said.
“I’m interested in going down the film and media path at the moment but The Guernsey Bar’s have-a-go activity particularly caught my attention and did make me think about a career within the legal sector. It was really fun to do and eye opening to the world of celebrities and crime.”
The Guernsey Bar was one of over 70 organisations at the show giving advice and information to students.
Advocate Howitt said: “Having a presence at the Careers and Skills Show is a great opportunity to engage with students and discuss the plethora of options available within the legal profession. Whether they are considering A Level choices, making plans for higher education or heading straight into a career after they leave school we hope we were able to provide the students with some clear ideas of what is available to them.”
“I would like to wish Emily the very best in her future career.”
